OverviewThe Puma is the largest cat in Patagonia and Torres del Paine's top predator, yet very tricky to spot unless on a dedicated puma tracking trip, where we can see them in their natural habitat. They are gathered mostly in the eastern areas of Torres del Paine where there are fewer people, and together with our expert guides and trackers give you the best chances of seeing them up close. Spectacular landscapes, flora and fauna, this adventure is a must for wildlife and nature enthusiasts alike! Trip Highlights • Photograph Pumas Up Close • Chance to see Huemules (native deer) • Short Trek Through Laguna Azul & Laguna Amarga • Photograph Spectacular Landscapes of Torres Del Paine • Secluded Camping Experience in Our Riverside Camp!

Transfer to Chile Nativo Riverside Camp
Welcome Dinner & Night in Private Deluxe Tent (D)
The afternoon prior to your puma tracking excursion, a private transfer will take you along a scenic route through far stretching landscapes of the Patagonia pampas as the mountains and valleys of the Paine Massif come into sight. Travel along unpaved roads past lagoons and rolling pampas to the Rio Serrano sector of Torres Del Paine. Your destination - Chile Nativo´s Riverside Camp - a fully-equipped campsite located on the shores of the Serrano River, away from the buzz of crowded Refugios and campsites. Upon your arrival, you will be warmly greeted by the concierge and staff who will escort you to your private deluxe accommodation. Our double deluxe tents are located on raised platforms, protected against the bracing Patagonian elements. Inside, you’ll find double-height mattresses, cozy down covers and heaters that can be operated during the evening to ensure a warm night’s rest. Permanent, separate male and female bathrooms with hot showers are just a short walk from the tents.
After checking in, a freshly prepared welcome dinner awaits you in a dedicated dining lodge with a magnificent views of the Paine Massif and changing colors of the endless Patagonia sky. The shared lodge has spacious room to lounge, relax, and enjoy great company before turning in to your accommodation for the evening. Meals are abundant, delicious and our concierge is always onsite to answer questions and to ensure that your stay is as comfortable as possible.
Full Day Puma Tracking
Full day vehicle support for tracking & short transfers through park
8-10 hours Guided Tracking
Early in the morning after a hearty breakfast, your guide will pick you up from the Riverside Camp to start the adventure in search of the Puma. Once found, photos will be taken only for a few minutes (around 15 to 30 minutes), just not to alter too much the daily life of the Puma.
We’ll track the wild cat after hiking in particular sectors of the park to take some pictures and continue on our way.
A boxed lunch is served at Grey Lake area to try our luck finding the elusive Huemul (native deer) and photograph the spectacular landscapes that this sector offers. We will trek through other areas of the park, such as Laguna Azul and Laguna Amarga, to observe landscapes and other species, so that by the end of the day the Puma is once again seen for a few more minutes to be photographed for the last time.
After the last pictures, we drive back Puerto Natales.
